Arc System Works' crusade to improve the longevity of its fighting games continues this week with an update to BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. The team-based brawler released close to four whole years ago in June 2018 for PlayStation 4, and was reasonably well received.
Anyway, Cross Tag Battle's getting rollback netcode on the 14th April, which will allow for a much smoother online experience. Will it be enough to spark the game's resurgence? Probably not, but we wouldn't be surprised if the player count spikes over the next couple of weeks or so.
Arc System Works' recent love affair with rollback netcode began with Guilty Gear Strive last year. The gorgeous beat-'em-up boasts what is probably the best netcode we've ever experienced in a fighting game — and the Japanese developer has been keen to expand its newfound tech to its previous titles. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, which was ported to PS4 last month, is getting rollback netcode at some point this summer.
